SOCCER. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 16 May 1914
SOCCER. Northumberland and Durham United Reserves were.at home last Saturday to Yarraville Reserves. The game was fast and at half time N. and D. led by the only goal scored by Brown. After the interval Yarraville pressed and obtained an equal iscr. N. and D. then kept the opposing defence hard at work and Brown put the locals ahead. This put Yarraville on their mettle. Their outside left being unumarked near the corner flag, centred the ball which dropped right into the goal mouth. Thomp son caught it but in doing so stepped over the goal line and a goal was given. After this both goals had narrow escapes, the visitors forcing a corner in the last minute, but the game ended with honors even and the score 2 goals all. In the forward line Pichersgill, who has hitherto played back, and Brown, were very much to the front, while \Vallace also.played well. In the half back line J. Brown and Falla were very dependable and Greaves did all that was required. The forwards hardly need changin...

In this case the refuse was a fowl's head and inside, he was very sorry that it was this lady as she was just out from England, but someone had to be first and it happened to be her.

PROPOSED FOOTS CRAY CRECHE. The suggestion in last Saturday's "Advertiser" that an effort should be made to establish a creche, or flay nursing home, in Footscray has been well received and many mothers, whom circumstances com pel to go out to work for a liveli hood, are hopefully looking forward to some action being taken in the matter. One correspondent signing ,herself " Mother " writes : "The proposed creche would be a God send to many who, like myself, left with a young tamily to maintain, have to leave my children to look after themselves as best they may during the day. .Several women, having lost their helpmates work with me at the Ammunition works and others at other establishments in the district and all of them, I am sure, \tould hail with delight the opportunity of leaving our little ones in a place wvhere they would have the care and attention you describe.

EMPIRE DAY CELEBRATIONS. TRAITORS TO THEIR KING. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 23 May 1914
EMPIRE DAY OELEBRA TIONS. TRAITORS TO THEIR KING. In keeping with the sentiment of loyalty that stirs the blood of all Brit ishers throughout theI United Kingdom, the management of St. (George's thea tre, Yarraville, have secured a magni ficent picture dealing with the loyalty and disloyalty to the throne. The story lilmed in live reels, is a thrilling one and shown in beautiful colors, and very justly claims to he the greatest triumph in natural coloring yet accomplished. It deals with the assassination of the king when half the royal court was plotting to overthrow the throne, and so establish themselves in higher favor with the new monarch. This they suc ceed in doing, but a little party of loy alists, true even to death, await their chance. and bring destruction upon the heads of the traitors. 'he picture will be shown on Monday, Tuesday, aud Wednesday next.

TREE PLANTING. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 23 May 1914
TREE PLANTING. The local council is about to plant more street trees and the time is oppor tune to suggest that residents might do a lot to assist in thus beautifying the thoroughfares of the city by devoting some attention to the young trees in front of their respective properties. During a hot spell it is impossible for the council's staff to attend to thewater ing of the whole of the trees and, in the past, many have died or have been stunted because if is so. A few buck ets of water given them by householders and the keeping of a watchful eye on the trees to prevent them being dam aged by juveniles, would be highly bene ficial and would be the kind of self-help that makes for improvement.

SHOULD WIVES OBEY ? Thi:s is a quc:,tion that one would imagine offered but two unqualified an swers, and yet, in the May number of " E-vcrylady':; journal, " just out, we find upwardc of a dozen prominent people ex pressing various opinions on the subject. And they are people of widely dilfferent station and profession. Men as far apart as lAr Biernard O'Dowd, the well-known Australian poet, and Mr Paris Nesbit, K C. men so closely associated (by their laugh ter) as Harry Lauder and Sir Alexander Peacock ; and stage favorites like Mliss Ada Reeve and Miss Daisy Jerome, all differ more or less:, on this important topic. Even champions of Women's Rights like Miss Vida Goldstein and Miss Adela Pankhurst are not i'uite at one about it.
